My eyes are extremely sensitive to onions. Some days cutting an onion becomes a major ordeal, what with all of the crying and the burning. I love onions, but honestly, sometimes it doesn't seems worth the drama.
Not too long ago I was introduced to the onion goggles by way of a food blog. I have been sort of coveting the onion goggles, but $20 seems like a lot to spend on such a silly product. The onion goggles sort of piss me off, to be honest. I want them, and yet I hate them.
I think they are quite fetching.
I have not had occasion to try them out yet, but I will do a full report as soon as I cut an onion. I can't see any reason why these wouldn't work as well as the onion goggles. I feel a moral responsibility to protect my eyes from the harsh sting of the onions, and to protect my pocket book from the unreasonable demands of the onion goggle industry.
Safety first, that's what I always say.
